    Default Multi-boot?[Vista&Mac]

    Is there anyway for me to multi-boot? I am running windows vista, but want to run a Mac OS also...

    I am on a newer HP Laptop.. with 160 GB HD, 32-Bit OS, 2 GB Ram, Intel Core 2 CPU T5600 @ 1.83 GHz...

    Is it possible? and if so.. can somebody help me with it.. or link me to a guide of some sort.

    With a laptop you more than likely can't have 2 hard drives, so the way I did it was to use Vista disk manager to shrink the Vista partition by 20 GB. Find the OS X disk that best meets your system specs compatibility and then burn it to a DVD and install. Use the Mac Disk utility to format the 20 GB partition with the MBR option. Use a vista boot manager utility like EasyBCD and edit your boot ini file.

    Hello, sure it is possible.

    Check out my tutorial: http://www.***********.com/blog/arch...ootloader.html

    It explains how to use Darwin Bootloader to dual boot!
